Let me start by saying that the congregation I was in split into two congregations long ago. Let's just say I was in "North" and I know everyone from "South" but I have actually never ever set foot in "South's" Kingdom Hall.
So my cell phone rings and displays a local call, but not a name. That means it's not a stored number. I answered.
Them: "(Uses my first name) [OnThe], it's Alvin."
Me: (Pausing to process who that might be.)
Them: "[OnThe], are you there?"
Me: "Yes." (still not knowing who that might be)
Them: "Did Jonathon Doe call you?"
(Jonathon Doe is the coordinator of the body of elders at 'South' Congregation, but I served with him at 'North.')
Them: "Well, we are going to cancel the meeting tonight due to the weather."
Me: (Still pausing to process who tAlvin might be, and why he finds it necessary to tell me this about a congregation I had never been to.)
Them: "Is that something you agree with?"
Them: "Are you okay? Did I just wake you up."
Me: "No, I am awake."
Them: "Well, make sure you pass that on."
Me: "To anyone who asks."
Them: "Okay, gotta call others. Bye."
So after he hangs up, I figure that Alvin is one of the MS's from 'North' that almost certainly must be an elder at 'South' now. I knew him well and I further figured that he thought he was talking to one of the elders at 'South' that used to be in the bookstudy group that I conducted when he was an MS at 'North.' That elder has the same first name as me and his last name would put him extremely close to my last name in someone's personal phone book. So Alvin thought he was speaking to [OnThe] [WayUpInTheJWs] instead of [OnThe] [WayOut].
I burst out laughing. I shared this with my wife when she got home. She wanted to know if I called Alvin back to let him know about his goof.
"No. I didn't figure it out until afterward and I didn't misrepresent myself or lie. I left it alone."
